Network vendor Netcentrex and T-2, which claims to be the first company to offer VDSL Internet access and triple play services in Slovenia, have announced that T-2 will use Netcentrex for its IP-based communications management and delivery.
 
T-2 launched services on Slovenia's residential and corporate communications markets in October 2005, using Netcentrex' MyCall Residential Services suite and Business Services suite. The services run on the CCS application softswitch platform, connected to an SMC SS7 signaling and media controller to ensure call control between the legacy and IP networks. The solutions are IMS compliant.
 
 This Friday Brian Mahony, Netcentrex's VP Marketing will deliver the 9:45 a.m. keynote address at TMC's Ft. Lauderdale VoIP Conference and Expo.
 
T-2, a Maribor-based company owned by financial firm Zvon Ena Holding, thinks it has a shot at gaining 25 percent market share and becoming Slovenia's leading alternative
service provider over the next few years. To this end T-2 is deploying triple play services
combining traditional Internet access with fixed telephony, video communication and 120-channel digital television using VDSL technologies.
 
"We are convinced that the combination of high quality telephony, video, TV and Internet services will create the subscriber demand in line with our revenue targets," states T-2's managing director, Matevz Turk. He noted that the Netcentrex products "provide a strong foundation on which to evolve next-generation multimedia services such as Video-on-Demand and personal video telephony."
 
Boris Dezier, General Manager for Central and Eastern Europe at Netcentrex, said the rapid growth of the Slovenian communication market "has made it essential for service providers to differentiate their offerings and provide added value in order to remain competitive and increase market share."
 
Netcentrex, a vendor of converged voice-video-data networks and next-generation services, has also recently announced the launch of IPCentrex One, a turnkey product for the deployment of hosted telephony services.
 
Company officials say it gives service providers and operators an easy entry onto the lucrative IP Centrex market for very small enterprises.
 
Frost & Sullivan estimates that by 2011 the market for hosted IP telephony and VoIP access services for enterprises will grow to over $8 billion in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. IP Centrex, a software-based product that places all call control and communication applications in the service provider's network, removes the need for an on-site PBX. It's expected to constitute around 40 percent of this market with small and medium-sized enterprises being the fastest adopters, according to F&S.
